New Chapter of Wild Adapter

veronicacode tells us that there's a new chapter of Minekura-sensei's Wild Adapter out.

This hands me a problem, because I don't know of a translation site equivalent to saiyuki_manga on which I can read it. Anybody have a suggestion?

Oh Tokyopop. You were such ditzes, but you had such good stories. I'm glad that Viz picked up Loveless, but I wish someone would do the same for sensei's various series.

This entry is also posted at Dreamwidth. Comment at either location, as you prefer.

Yeah I agree, it would be good to have a translation of that chapter. I think maybe as Sensei publishes more work and gets better Viz might pick up Saiyuki/Wild Adapter. Since the chapters she publishes are very sporadic.

smillaraaq and I can't figure out why Viz or someone hasn't picked up Saiyuki Gaiden: only four volumes to publish, and a ready-made fanbase. What's not to like, if you're already publishing manga?

I heard via the grapevine years ago that Gaiden was caught up in some kind of copyright brouhahaha.

Oh, ick! :-(

Maybe something will eventually break free for her. P.C. Hodgell's fantasy epic was tangled up with copyright issues for years. Baen is giving her crappy covers, but at least she's being published now.

Hm. Am I missing something? This is the same chapter that was published in 2008. =/

(I wrote a summary here: http://athena8.livejournal.com/337416.html)

I'm not sure if my browser is messing up, or I'm hitting the wrong link?

There's been some discussion online; maybe they got the info from her blog. Apparently she's cleaning up the plotlines before starting with new material, or something like that.

It is the new chapter on ZeroSum online but actually it is a mix of some dices that Minekura-sensei published on Chara Tokuma when she still worked for them. Even if it looks for the main part the same of the old ones, there are light changements like added backgrounds and some new scenes. About the dialogues, I think they are almost the same. Liadhain has translated them and you can find scanlations here: http://mangafox.me/manga/wild_adapter/

Yes, liadhdain was explaining it on her LJ: apparently sensei combined earlier versions of two chapters to make this one.

I like seeing sensei's more recent drawing style with the WA boys! The little dog is adorable. Her drawing was always compelling, but it's becoming technically brilliant as well.
